Hello, recently I have had a lot of pain by my molar band. It's red and bleeds every time I brush. Also, it feels like the top of the buccal tube is pushing against my inflamed gums. Not sure what to do. My dentist and orthodontist are are in different places..I don't know who to contact first or if I should just let it heal on its own. Please help. Thank you.

Sorry, accidentally posted this on another forum and don't know how to delete.

Good day

I would visit the orthodontist first.
In the mean time, try to rinse with a salt water solution, about 3 times a day, to assist with the inflammation. It is possible that the wire and the band needs some adjustment, and the orthodontist is best suited to attend to this
